Comes with bonus soundtrack in America
Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven would be the Game of the Year if we handed out awards to games based on the wit and cunning of their subtitles. Alas, we do not. But we definitely see what you did there, XSEED. So, kudos.

The publisher revealed a new mixed media project at this weekend's AnimeJapan ex...
Kenichiro Takaki continues to wrap the world in happy boobs
Once upon a time, XSEED seemed pretty cagey about publishing the Senran Kagura games. Nowadays the plucky localization studio can't seem to bring the danged things over fast enough.
Yes, you probably read the headline where ...

I wasn't kidding, was I?

The latest images include Asuka, Ikaru...

Rune Factory 4's journey to Europe has been a long and winding road.
At one point, when developer Neverland went bankrupt and closed its doors, it looked like the role-playing game might never release in PAL territories. Luck...
Light and delicious
Some may call Senran Kagura inherently tasteless, but the series of action-packed brawlers has depth and satisfying combat. The games have swept the handheld community mainly because of their increasingly risqué conten...

Bounce, baby, bounce, b-bounce, b-bounce
In the world of Senran Kagura, excess is the rule. The outfits are skimpy, the plot threads are ludicrous, and the breasts are laughably large, so huge in fact that you wonder how the skimpy bras the girls are eventually stri...
XSEED publishing 3DS RPG as a digital-only title
It seems Rune Factory 4's trip across the pond was postponed more so than cancelled, and the role-playing game will be turning up on European shores fairly soon.

If you're still following along with Muramasa Rebirth's great string of DLC, the fourth chapter is nearly ready for release. It features a demon girl called the Oni Musume, who has the power to transform and change her shape...
I believe it's spelled 'manga'....
Forbidden Magna (3DS) is coming to Japan in October courtesy of the team that made Rune Factory and Marvelous AQL. Xseed expressed interest in localizing it earlier this year, but nothing new on that front, so here's a trailer that at once intrigues me with its strategy mechanics and repulses me with its horrifying character models.
That ground-pound also sure is something
Marvelous is keeping its cheeky money-printing machine going strong with Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson. The latest effort from self-proclaimed "huge boob producer" Kenichiro Takaki is due to be unleashed in Japan starti...

The Senran Kagura series takes fan-service to new heights in the upcoming brawler Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus and Senran Kagura Bon Appetít!, a rhythm cooking game. Both titles were available to demo at XSEED's booth at E3 2014.
A rose by any other name
A lot of folks seem pretty confused about what's going on with Harvest Moon. And that's perfectly understandable, because it's a tad complicated. Please allow me to try to explain the situation.
XSEED recently announced a far...
